What Are the Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts?

When Lawrenceville Chevy drivers visit the Rick Hendrick Chevrolet Duluth service center for repairs, they often ask, “What are the benefits of OEM Chevy parts?” OEM – or Original Equipment Manufacturer – Chevrolet parts and accessories are designed and manufactured by the same engineers who designed and built your Chevy car, truck, or SUV in the first place. What does this mean for Suwanee drivers? You can expect Chevrolet OEM parts to deliver the same quality and lifespan as the original component you’re replacing! The same cannot be said for aftermarket parts.

What Are Aftermarket Parts?

Major car manufacturers like Chevrolet (or their parent company, General Motors) have no association with the production of aftermarket parts, which are manufactured entirely by third party companies. Aftermarket parts are built at high volumes with no real specifications, with the intent of “fitting” as many makes and models as possible, not just Chevrolet. As you might expect, a part that was built to fit a Chevrolet vehicle just as seamlessly as a Toyota vehicle isn’t likely to yield great results.

Because of these lower standards, aftermarket parts are often cheaper in price than Chevrolet OEM parts. You get what you pay for, however; with a lower price often comes lower quality. This is just one of several reasons why aftermarket parts are not OEM-recommended.

Genuine Chevy Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

Your Chevrolet vehicle deserves only the best, and that means opting for genuine OEM Chevrolet parts when it is in need of a repair or component replacement. In addition to superior overall quality, Chevrolet OEM parts offer the following benefits:

  • Simpler Selection: Whether you’re shopping for a mechanical component replacement part or special performance parts, you won’t have to worry about comparing quality and price when you shop through a genuine Chevy parts catalog. You’ll get the appropriate part at a reasonable price – no guessing games required.
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM Chevrolet parts are covered with a Limited Parts Warranty, increasing their value over aftermarket parts even further. What’s more, using an aftermarket part could jeopardize your original new vehicle warranty coverage if it can be proven that the part caused damage to your vehicle.
